First of all

Harp Center and its collaborators maintain the published minimum rates for regulated work in Switzerland as a music teacher.

All the collaborators and the founder Eleonora Ligabò are members of the SSPM and have obtained the compulsory Master in Music Pedagogy to teach in Switzerland and are independent while sharing the same spaces. In our structure no promotions are created to attract customers because we are sure of our professionalism, preparation and the quality of the product offered . The diplomas and masters of each collaborator can be consulted and displayed on site to guarantee you the best teaching quality. We promote musical culture in Ticino and our students are not numbers with an economic value, but students with a passion to cultivate.

Teach in harmony

For a harmony between teacher and pupil, a booklet created by pupils for pupils is distributed during the first trial lesson, which clarifies the importance of study and a suitable tool for the pupil. Download it for free in pdf by clicking below!
